Default My chip fan

which is normally nice and quiet has decided lately to be really loud. It sounds like its spinning really really really fast and straining a lot, and I don't know whats up. I'e taken it off, cleaned it really well, and then replaced the thermal compund and its still doing it. Please help me!!! I'm not replacing the motherboard, because 1) I don't have money for that, and 2) In about 8 months I'm going stop using this computer (laptop for college) Which means I need a quick cheap fix.

Thanks. As soon as I can get my hands on a credit card I'm buying that.
